Check out the capabilities of the latest Volvo engine!
Volvo introduces performance and efficiency benefits of the T5 turbocharged petrol engine that would be available for S90 saloon, V90 estate, V90 Cross Country and XC90 SUV. With massive overall output of 250hp and 350Nm of torque, the T5 would ensure pleasurable, smooth and refined driving experience.
The T5 joins the newest Volvo-designed-and-built Drive-E engines and reveal that Volvo hasn't stopped to deliver us ever-evolving engineering solutions. This is an advanced piece of technology that would dramatically change the lineup it is designed for.
The 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine benefits from numerous goodies, among which are variable valve system that supports driveability and overall efficiency, advanced combustion control for reduced power losses through internal friction and added single-scroll turbocharger that uses exhaust gases to force more air through the induction system. Neat!
